of the obama administration that republicans and romney are referring to? >> well, i think he's talking about what just happened in this fiasco in libya. governor romney had a good week talking about the economy. they want to definele what will be talked about this week on the if foreign policy front. they'll have a hearing about what went on the in libya on the security side leading up to the attack there. that's what he wants to set the stage for. if they talk about foreign policy this week, he wants it to define the terms on which we have that debate. >> because words matter, you started off with with saying i think that's what governor romney was talking about. an ongoing investigation into what happened in libya. obviously, aa he great concern. but you could not answer that question with certainty of what epic failure governor romney and republicans believe has happened over the past four years under this president's leadership, under secretary of state hillary clinton here. that is still unclear even after that 25-minute speech a couple of hours ago. >> he made the case that the middle
obama and mitt romney. >> dave wood, our war correspondent extraordinaire there will be talk affidavit war in afghanistan. mitt romney had words about the president's treatment of iraq. let's focus on the afghanistan question. it's the 11-year anniversary of the war, yesterday, i believe. mitt romney had an interesting romneyesque take on afghanistan saying he would pursue a real and successful transition to the afghan security forces by the end of 2014 and goes on to say outlining an exit date is pricely the misstep the president made. let's play that sound if we have it. >> in afghanistan, i will pursue a real and successful transition to afghan security forces by the end of 2014. president obama would have you believe anyone who disagrees with his decisions in afghanistan is arguing for endless war. but the route to war and to potential attacks at home is a politically timed retreat that abandons the afghan people to the same extremists who aravage their country. i will evaluate conditions on the ground and weigh the best advice of our military commanders. >> to me that sounds like
about the peace process. this is the same mitt romney, i believe, who was taped talking about the 47% and said, you know, when it comes to the middle east it's never going to happen. i will leave it to the next guy. >> we have that. let's listen to what mitt romney. almost literally said to kick the can down the road. this is part of the infamous 47% videotape taken surreptitiously in florida this year. let's listen to what he said about palestine. >> i look at the palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of israel and these issues and i say there is just no way. so you move things along the best way you can, hope for some degree of stability but recognize this is going to remain an unsolved problem. >> this is what he says today about israel and palestine. >> i will recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with the jewish state of israel e. on this issue the president has failed. what should be a negotiation has devolved into heated his
the republican, ron paul. i will vote for mitt romney because he talks like he has a head on strong. he will get the industrial back to work. how much is obama spending every year on an green global environment? how much money has he spent on the environment? everybody keeps calling me wanting me to go to college and stuff. how can i go to work -- there is no industrial work? >> thank you for the call. you mentioned ron paul -- of course it was congressman paul ryan debating tonight. >> i want to state that you said earlier that somebody on the page stated joe biden was a fool. he was an overly aggressive. i feel like obama should have been more aggressive with romney in the first debate. look, joe biden put it this administrative record on the record. paul ryan that could not back up what he was saying. >> ok. thank you for the call. john has this point. . >> and other men are two with your calls and comments and another chance to see the debate in its entirety. less is on the phone from kentucky. >> is essentially the format really did not serve either by then -- joe biden or paul ryan. i thou
-- >> it is. it needs to be offset by reducing the rate. re-knew neutral, rates down. >> neil: romney talk it about cutting everyone's taxes by 20% and he is going to create the allowances and as he says make it in the end revenue natural -- >> that is not a tax increase. >> neil: ill's a tax cut. allowing for upper income people might find themselves at best with a wash. some may pay more. >> guest: we are looking for overall not raise tax burden on people. >> neil: i want to be clear. you are on board with the rich carrying a bigger chunk of the burden if their deductions are phased out or limited? >> guest: as long as rates don't go up and the overall tax burden doesn't go up, the tax reform is perfectly acceptable. that is a good idea. >> neil: okay. grover, thank you very much. he is a svengali. he is more popular than sesame street character. lizzy macdonald, interesting what he said that potential middle ground could be how you define a tax hike. allow extension but make sure you are setting it with the real spending cut. that might be a way out for republicans who feel boxed in. i
that the campaign always said that mitt romney was not comfortable talking about. these kinds of very personal things but is it effective? >> i thought in the debate it was very effective when he personalized things and talked about families he met and people he met an dong it on the road now, too. i think that's smart. voters throughout the campaign -- polls have shown voters find obama more likable person and in the next two debates romney's going to maintain that and increase the likability. they're voting for someone to hear speak for four years and he has to close the gap to win the election. >> people that support the president saying on style and substance we see a different man going after the new mitt romney and surrogates pointing it out, working it in to the stump speech. take a listen. >> now, my opponent is doing a little tap dance at the debate the other night. trying to wriggle out of stuff he's been saying for a year. doing like a -- it was like "dancing with the stars." more maybe it was "extreme makeover." debate edition. >> robert, is that effective? >> i'm not so sure it's
ads going after the president both on things like the deficit, but talking more about mitt romney's own plans for reform and so they're trying to bulk up their presence out there in the the swing states and really grab this momentum and then they've also of course, got to have a good rest of the remaining debates. no one should forget, john kerry had a good opening debate in 2004 and went on to lose the election and they're aware of that. and he's got to keep this image rolling with the public. >> paul: okay, much more ahead on this week's presidential debate. including mitt romney's takedown of obamacare, a topic he's largely avoided on the campaign trail. so, why the change of heart? tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about that 401(k) you picked up back in the '80s. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like a lot of things, the market has changed, tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 and your plans probably have too. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at charles schwab, we'll give you personalized recommendations tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 on how to reinvest that old 401(k). tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 so talk to chuck tdd#: 1-800-345-255
in ohio. romney talked about how proud he was of the vice presidential choice and ryan's performance at the debate this week. >> gosh, we got to watch this guy debate. and, there was one person on the stage with thoughtfulness who was respectful who was steady and poised. there's one person on that stage you'd want to be with if there were a crisis. it's this man right here. >> today romney has stomps planned in portsmouth and lebanon and paul ryan will be in youngstown. >>> ohio is one of the key swing states for romney and obama. both have spent a lot of time there talking to voters. >> how are the voters receiving all that attention? cnn political editor paul stein house e steinha steinha steinh steinhauser joining us from ohio. >> i know it sounds like a broken record, if people remember what records are. ohio getting so much attention. 18 electoral vote. not the biggest of the battleground states when it comes to that, florida has more. by my unofficial count here since the start of the general election which people perceive to be early april. 16 visits by mitt romney or 16 swin
, jobs. which cand date has a better policy on jobs and every time mitt romney talks about it in the debate or adyou saw the democrat line rose . for mitt romney, the next 30 days has to be that. and barak obama four year legacy is failure on crating jobs and why governor romney's approach is more aprorbable. >> and the obama people came back with a response. look at it and tell us what you found. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. i like to fire people. too many of those working are living pay check to pay check. >> 10,000 bucks in president obama and i both care about poor and middle class. i am not concerned about the poor. >> my policy will make thippings better for them. >> it is not to worry about those emp they should take responsibility. i am mitt romney and i approved this message. >> and frank, tell us what that tells us. >> it tells us negative ad does work. they are using romney's actul word said against him they show the contrast. romney's assertion and response and it is measured. there is no announcer and no angering music b
me next. and in the rewrite tonight if mitt romney denounces todd akin for talking about legitimate rape, why doesn't he denounce the republican who uses the bible to justify slavery? that's coming up. [ male announcer ] feeling like a shadow of your former self? c'mon, michael! get in the game! [ male announcer ] don't have the hops for hoops with your buddies? lost your appetite for romance? and your mood is on its way down. you might not just be getting older. you might have a treatable condition called low testosterone or low t. millions of men, forty-five or older, may have low t. so talk to your doctor about low t. hey, michael! [ male announcer ] and step out of the shadows. hi! how are you? [ male announcer ] learn more at isitlowt.com. [ laughs ] hey! hi! how are you? i"i'm not in favor of a a$5 trillion tax cut. that's not my plan." mitchell: "the nonpartisan tax policy center concluded that mitt romney's tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years." vo: why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to
. >> there's mitt romney talking about a 32-year conviction that he held since his mother brought him in in 1970 where he's saying i will preserve and protect a woman ace right to choice. holding his mother's philosophy on this for 32 years and now here we are in 2012 and it's whatever the right wing wants. >> well, i think ted kennedy said it best, he is multiple choice when it comes to this issue. and i think the thij we have to make sure women understand is, he has also said in 2007 he would be delighted to sign lethization if it came to his desk that would repeal funding for abortions or repeal access to abortions. and he still says he would do away with funding for planned parenthood and he still doesn't seem to understand that these are economic issues for women. so what women need to do is listen carefully to the parsing of the language. no legislation that i'm familiar with. that's trying to fool women on the one hand and fla kate the right wing on the other. and i think we have to pay close attention to what he has said and the multiple choices he has taken on this issue and
. >> i want to talk about, in the middle of the crisis, governor romney talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration was in that same position. they disavowed their own statement they put up earlier in the day in cairo. it is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away. we should always stand up for peace, democracy, individual rights. we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. when we equivocate on our values, it make us look weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> that is a bunch of malarkey. this lecture on embassy security. the congressman cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security. governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that the ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements. he was panned by the media around the world. this talk about this weakness, i do not understand what my friend is
talking about the middle east. you used the words leading from behind. mitt romney used it at least once in the speech. the speech was an attempt to say, this is what barack obama has done. here is what i would do. it was tonal more than specific. it was more we need to be bigger, more aggressive whether it's iran or another syria. it was broadly philosophically we need a stronger, more muscular approach. >> on several points he's critical on iran because he would have opposed the initial attempt to open up towards iran and thinks the president didn't go far enough at all in supporting the green revolution of students in iran in june of 2009. the response from the obama team is that the iranian leaders, the reform leaders, student revolutionaries were saying, don't be too overt. it will have a backlash effect. that can be e debated. on sanctions they are criticizing the failure to go tougher though the president arguably did better than george bush in getting russia and china to permit tougher sanctions. they are focused on the sanctions the treasury department opposed. those on the cent
-elected. >> in fairness, both obama in romney are talking about alternative ways of doing this. eliminating the deductions that an individual can take. >> romney told me $25,000 -- >> and the president has proposed to reduce the rate at which you can item yieds it. >> but romney started out at 17,000 and then to you he start of raised the cap a little bit. >> and chuck shumer threw a ball into this. we have a trillion deficit. why are we reducing tax rates at all. let's use it to our deficit reduction rather than lowering rates at the top. >> you know this as i did. when biden kept talking about raising taxes for people making a million or more as opposed to $250,000. >> that's a chuck schumer idea as well coming from new york. >> but all this should tell us is that before people go to the voting boothss, they're not going to know the answers to these questions. everyone would like to know the answers to these questions, but you have professional groups disagreeing about the economic impact of these things. so we don't really know. >> we have more clarity on the spending side where romney has said he want
is the president still talking about it? >> and that debate, what happened? >> gov. romney had a good night. i had a bad night. >> how bad? >> it is not the first bad that i have ever had. >> if the polls were to be believed, it was a bad, bad night. the president was still talking about a week later. checking the polls, pew, romney's performance erases obama leed. >> my good conservative friend was telling me about the sinister conspiracy of the polls. that they were all rigged, giving the impression that the liberals are running away with the election. and all the sudden you have conservatives hijacking the polls and you have dispirited and liberals. the liberals were dispirited. there was a sense of real puzzlement, where was the president? why did he not show up? these are people who have been picking out their inaugural outfits. the romney people, prior to that debate were heading for the lifeboats. they thought it was over and they were going to concentrate on holding on to the house and may be winning the senate. it was transformational in that sense. in the political world, however, has no
an opening to talk about romney's accountant and doesn't say you have a terrific accountant. chris: s.e. cupp, your view, was it a reset for the challenger? >> they certainly think it was. i talked to some romney advisors and they see the reset in three parts. they think for supporters who really wanted to see a fight, they wanted to see this knockout, dragout fight, they got that. for undecideds who they call the tough customers, they think that this debate does what the ads have not been able to do which is spark their attention. for the soft obama voters of 2008, they think maybe this group is in play again. they think this is a hat trick moving forward. chris: let me ask you, we have a big jobs number, it was below eight and was promised three years ago and is below eight, 7.8. is it enough to give obama a reshot of momentum? >> it's certainly a boost. is it a sugar high? these numbers bounce around. chris: good for the next month, though. >> good for the next month but the final judgment will come the weekend before the election. if this ends up being revised upward and, you know, there
obama. the romney interview, he talks about his tax plan, his 47 comment and what he would do about iran's nuclear program. and paul ryan pumps iron. jeannie moos takes a look at those controversial workout photos. i'm wolf blitzer and you're in "the situation room." >> we begin with a dramatically changed political landscape as we head into tuesday's second debate between president obama and governor romney. poll after poll shows momentum building behind the romney/ryan tukt and there's pressure on the president now t wrap up his game for the three-week sprint to election day. let's bring in our correspondent, we're getting reaction to the vice presidential debate, more comments coming in. but the president has his mission cut out for him right now. dan? >> he really does. we just have to look back to right after the debate where the president turned up his volume, strongly aggressively going after his gop opponents. but what we saw this week at the university of miami on thursday at a big rally there was the president even turning up the volume a bit more. attacking mitt romney for wha
in these debates. the thing they're not talking about are mitt romney's taxes. the idea that they can look back and talk about taxes and ryan still getting caught with these lies and then the next day saying that's exactly what we meant to say. how does this work, errol. >> a promise has been made. a big broad promise has been made to splash taxes. it's estimated by a reasonable objective source that this could cost treasury 5 trillion-dollar over ten years. a lot of people are naturally curious. where are you going to get that 5 trillion-dollar, and it's not in this ticket's political best interest to answer this question. let's say they can do this. the mortgage deduction is going to have to go. there are a number of important tax loopholes, if you want to call them that, or tax incentives that will have to be ended. this is not something they're prepared to talk about. politically you have to understand that. they have 27 days left. it's not in anybody's best interest to say we're going to hawk at the most important entitlement that they've had for generations. they're trying to do somethin
take in. >> governor romney talked about the issue in his debate with president obama. conservatives and liberals are calling for a move to moral economy. for republicans cutting spend democrats it is asking the rich to pay more. governor mike huckabee joins us live . great to have you here. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, uma. >> i know it is an important issue. why do you feel morality and the economy are linked . >> some people call it generational theft and that is accurate description and if you steal from somebody that is a moral issue. that's what we are doing. we are stealing from the generation that is coming after us. we are spending money they will have to pay back on our behalf . we get the benefit and they get the burden. that is immoral and wrong to do that and that is what the huge 16 trillion debt represents. >> are you concerned about the current state of affairs is accepted by some as the new norpal? >> i am uma . let me be fair. this is not just something democrats created but republicans have done. republicans boast they don't raise taxes. that may be wond
the world more chaotic and us less safe. >> governor romney talked about the weakness -- talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that really appropriate right in the middle of the crisis? >> ryan: on that same bay the obama administration had the exact same position. they disavowed their own statement that put up earlier in the day in cairo. but it's never too early to speak up for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting when iran people were being attacked. we should alwaysing stand up for peace, for demom aresy and individual rights. and not imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does when we equivocate on our values -- it projects weakness, and when we look weak our adversaries are -- >> biden: that's all a bunch of ma lar i can. >> be specific. >> biden: the congressman here cut embassy security in his bert by $300 billion below what we asked for. number two governor romney before he even knew that our ambassador was killed he was making a political statement panne
failed -- >> tara that was an excellent shift but answer for me about governor romney. we can talk about the president. >> that is my answer. >> no, that is my answer, soledad. >> the answer is that the president -- -- the answer about president obama? >> i think the governor has made his position clear relative to where we stand with israel. >> he hasn't is my point. >> decided to meet with entertainment folks and people like that, rather than benjamin netanyahu and i think that there -- again, there's a clear position here -- >> it's not. it's not. that's my point. my point, tara, hold on. just hold on. my point is, it's completely contradictory. my question is, which is it? >> in your viewpoint. >> okay. then tell me how it's not completely contradictory in your viewpoint, but don't talk about president obama at this moment, answer the question about governor romney. >> we will stand side by side with -- we will stand side by side with israel and -- and -- and the governor has made that clear. i'm not going to get into a big foreign policy debate with you here. that's not -- that's no
, the senior communications adviser for the romney campaign. nice to see you. thanks for talking with us. >> hi, soledad. good morning. absolutely. >> so we know having read some of these excerpts that have been sent out by the campaign that governor romney's going to focus on israel, he's going to focus on the palestinian territories and no big surprise, he's going to focus on iran. why don't you spell out for me exactly what governor romney's position is when it comes to iran? >> well, listen, governor romney is going to clearly spell out the choice that there is this election, particularly when it comes to foreign policy and all of the unrest that is happening in the middle east right now and how we have to address that and that is working with our allies, that is calling terrorism terrorism when we see it, that is acting boldly and strongly with leadership and that's what americans want to see and hear. i think we'll have an opportunity to see that in the speech. i don't want to give out the whole speech. i think that americans will have the opportunity to hear that and see that. but i thin
have, our strongest allies, the european countries, eastern european countries. romney is talking, romney is channeling reagan. >>eric: take a listen to the obama, i am not sure it is the campaign or the super pac but an ad talking about romney's foreign policy experience. >> reckless. amateurish. that is what news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled tour of england saying the knee-jerk response showed a lack of presidential character. even republican perts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. earthquake amateur in. >>guest: did romney make a few mistakes? sure, that is what happens first time out of the box. the policies, though, and the substance, are what really makes the difference. it is not just pretty speeches. on the other hand, it is not just using the american military to push our way around the world. i found this speech actually really phenomenal. i commend him for doing it. >>eric: i asked the producer to put something over the weekend, the israeli air force knocking down a drone. i believe, i don't think
's watch a clip today of governor romney talking about abortion. >> what is the correct position of governor romney? he was always saying we need to revert row wade and now he is saying not even that. people says whatever it suits him depending on whether he is appealing to the hard right. mr. moderate mitt that we haven't seen for months. >> you know, listen, to what he is referring to as far as is there piles of specific legislation that he is going to point to? the fact is, he is always has been an he is committed to being a pro life president and committed to the fact that we will not be funding planned parenthood to fund abortions and committed to the mexico city legislation so that it is being used to perform abortions and he is a pro life president and he is proud of it. you are taking that sound byte and referring to piles of legislation sitting in congress and it is much to do about nothing. this president hasn't performed and he is chasing every rob it down the trail making this about his own record and the miserable condition about the economy. >> it comes down to trus
to a clip from tonight's debate. >> gov. romney talk about the weakness and apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate right in the middle of a crisis? >> on the same day the obama administration had the same position. they descend out there on statement to put up earlier in the day in cairo. it is never too early to speak out for our valleys. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and started when the mullahs in iran were attacking their own people. we should always stand up for peace, for democracy, for individual rights. we should not imposing these devastating defense cuts. what that does well way equivocate on our values, we sure we are cutting our own defense, it projects weakness. will we look we, our adversaries are more willing to test us. >> with all due respect, that is a bunch of malarkey. not a single thing said is accurate. i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security, the congressmen here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security
governor romney talking about the need to do that. i think also he will talk about having a fair approach that actually applies the laws that we have on the commonwealth of virginia but across the country. one of the things that we see with the border incidents i think most people want us to have a clear policy that we are working with the states not against the states to try to get that enforced. i think if governor romney does is that i think he will do well across the board with voters in virginia. >> geraldo: did you, kristine, enjoy the debate? >> i had a blast watching the debate. it was a lot of fun. >> geraldo: where did you watch t? at the pub or in church where did you watch it? >> i was actually with me family sitting on the couch. high-fiving everybody. >> geraldo: what did you think was the strongest moment, the governor's? >>> ry moment was strong from the way he walked out exuding leadership and confidence and he would not let president obama get away with this misinformation. there is a saying a lie runs around the world while the truth is still lacing up his sneakers. tha
, and when rom romney talks about repealing health care reform that's women's costs are going up, i'm not spending on my family, these issues are interconnected for women and that's been the president from president obama and joe biden in the way that romney and ryan are trying to get around talking about it. >> i think also ryan was going out of his way to appear sort of moderate and not is logically extreme and then was asked about the abortion question and really like, you know, kind of had a nonanswer almost because he doesn't believe in a woman's right to choose and -- >> he doesn't even agree with romney. when he said in a romney administration here's what position would be. that's not his position. he's actually more extreme than governor romney. >> he was the one sponsoring amendments with -- >> legitimate rape, which i like biden got that in there too. >> that's a separate ding. >> ben, the math thing has always been a trick of late, the arithmetic has been tricky for ryan, i'm referring to interviews with brit hume and chris wallace where he didn't have enough time to expl
and to gut medicare. joe biden simply dismantled the romney/ryan world view. but also talk about how the right wingers are trying to make a big deal out of joe biden's smile. so what? i would have been outright laughing in paul ryan's face. joe biden was fed up and who could blame him? >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> and why is that so? >> because not a single thing he said is accurate. >> this is a bunch of stuff. >> what do you mean a bunch of stuff? >> it's simply inaccurate. >> it's irish. >> thanks for the translation. okay. >> malarkey. a bunch of stuff. i love it. i love it. biden systematically took apart ryan's arguments for less government, let's accountability, let's community. it got so bad, paul ryan was driven to drink. literally. he went back to that cup of water over and over again. by our last count, at least 21 time. what's the matter there, mr. ryan? got a little cotton mouth? last night the romney/ryan effort was exposed as a shield for the extreme far right and vice president biden drove that point home again and again today, campaigning r
